Although Microsoft and Nokia have already kicked off the Windows Phone 7.8 rollout, it appears that not all smartphones are eligible for this upgrade.In this regard, there have been many reports suggesting LG Optimus 7 and HTC HD7 will not receive the highly-anticipated update, along with the other devices.
The good news is these rumors were inaccurate and that HTC HD7 owners can now upgrade their devices to Windows Phone 7.8.
The guys over at TuttoWindowsPhone report the update is now available for download in Italy via Zune desktop software. They successfully updated their HTC HD7 phone to version 7.10.8858.136 and everything works smoothly.
For the time being, these are the only reports on Windows Phone 7.8 for HTC HD7, but if it’s available in Italy it must arrive in other countries as well. Stay tuned for more info on this one.
